Smartphones and its apps have made our life easier. We use it all the time. They are so useful that we have become dependent on them. We use it for everything, even sending out our personal data. But have you ever thought that your personal and so sensitive info might have been at risk?
A techie will root/jailbreak his device to enhance the security module, but a nomal guy doesn't have much options. Fortunately, you don’t need to worry much because David, Aldo and Ashkan have made an smartphone app named, Mobilescope which tracks all the data exchange transferring with your smartphone and alerts you as soon as your name, your email ID, and other sensitive info is detected.
"It's a platform-agnostic interception tool that you can use on your Android, iOS, Blackberry, or Windows device," saysAshkan Soltani. He also added, “Our focus is making really simple the process of interception,”
It may interest you to know that this app has also won the programming contest organized by The Wall Street Journal earlier this year. Once signed up, you will receive a configuration, you need to install that. Once done, you are supposed to go to the website and not check the app to see the log of the data transferred by the apps on your device. It’s also compatible with Virtual Private Network (VPN) system.
Mobilescope also alerts you when someone tries to copy your address book to some other location. It also blocks unwanted advertisements. Ensures that the device communicates through secure (HTTPS)/ SSL Certified connections whenever possible.
The beta version of this app is now available for anyone to use. We highly recommend our readers to try this application and get their devices more secured.
